The term online dentist is not what you think it is. No, there is not a dentist performing surgery online or cleaning your teeth virtually. It is more about dentists who offer other services in an online environment.
For the average user online dentists will provide their service lists and contact information through their web sites or dentist directory. But increasingly, due to most patients going online for anything and everything, dentists are branching out and are offering live question and answer sessions, useful articles and tips, and emergency contact services too. Answers are posed and then received very quickly with online dentists, who either write directly back to the people asking questions or who connect with them via live chats, online forums, or a dentists directory. Through making themselves more approachable online, these dentists are making marks for themselves in reality too because they become more appealing.
